Google complains that for some weird reason, when people post links on Facebook to let their friends try out Google+, the links aren’t getting through. Facebook says it has no idea what Google is talking about. Just posted on the Daily Beast.
From the Guardian. Short version: Google needs patents and may just sell off the hardware business; but maybe not. Maybe Google wants to try to be Apple, doing integrated hardware and software.
